Storyboard Text

  • Antecedent: Stacie is reading a book quietly in the reading corner when Thomas comes up and takes the book out of her hands. 
  • Hey, I was reading that!
  • Behavior: Stacie grabs the book back and pushes Thomas away. The book falls on the floor and Thomas and Stacie begin arguing, pushing, and hitting each other.
  • That's mine!
  • No it's not! It's class property, I can read it too.
  • Behavior: Miss T approaches and takes the book away from both students. Stacie falls to the floor in a temper tantrum.
  • Consequence: While Stacie calms down with another adult, Miss T reviews the class rules with Thomas and reflects with him on what he might have done differently.
  • Do you think you were sharing and waiting your turn when you took the book away from Stacie?
  • How might you ask for the book next time?
  • Consequence: When Stacie has calmed down, Miss T reviews the class rules with Stacie, acknowledges her feelings, and discusses better options for the future.
  • I understand you were upset when Thomas took the book, but do you think you were being kind and respectful of Thomas when you pushed him?
  • Do you think a that better option might have been to ask a teacher for help?
  • Consequence: Miss T explains that the book will be back on the shelf tomorrow and reiterates her expectations for the students to share and treat each other according to the class rules.
